Ms Keily was originally described to me as having “the balls of a bull camel". Initially quiet and unassuming, when her clients are threatened Ms Keily is as steadfast and loyal as a Doberman...Fearless, and at times ferocious; she put our interests before her own. Sometimes I was even scared and I was seated behind her! I’m glad she is on my team not the other.
Complex matter with multiple defendants: Ms Keily cuts through the side-show with tact and resolve. Advice not only on target but incisive, comprehensive and comprehensible. Ms Keily has not only provided expert opinion, but has been an invaluable advisor, identifying issues beyond the original scope; bacon saved.
